Another Data point.
Platform: Linux 2.4.26
Browser1:  Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.1) 
Browser2:  Lynx Version 2.8.4rel.1 (17 Jul 2001)

with mozilla, right clicking and selecting "Save link target as" results in 
-rw-r--r--    1    696918 Jan 26 08:57 cvs-1.12.11-Darwin-7.7.0-powerpc.gz
for
https://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/681/cvs-1.12.11-Darwin-7.7.0-powerpc.gz

with mozilla, right clicking and selecting "Save link target as" results in
no file downloaded  for the following link.
https://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/682/cvs-1.12.11-Darwin-7.7.0-powerpc.gz.sig
However I get no errors.

with lynx
`lynx -accept_all_cookies -source \
https://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/682/cvs-1.12.11-Darwin-7.7.0-powerpc.gz.sig
\ >cvs-1.12.11-Darwin-7.7.0-powerpc.gz.sig`
I get a 66 byte file.

I grabbed what could be Conrad's pub key (it verifies a message from the guy
posting to this list as Conrad :) from MIT,
http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?search=Conrad+T.+Pino&op=index&fingerprint=on
and imported into a key ring.

gpg --verify Conradmsg.txt                           

gpg: Signature made Wed Jan 26 01:45:40 2005 EST using DSA key ID 9BCD3A3D

So it seems Something is NOT right with the download page, but if the key
from MIT is correct it looks like the above files are ok (from here).
